Abstract

Lein’s confocal systems make accurate and precise measurements in many different applications. In applications where the object under test introduces variability and/or optical aberrations to the optical signal, the accuracy and precision may deteriorate. This technical challenge looks for mathematical solutions to improve the accuracy and precision of measurements made in such circumstances.

The presentation will outline the confocal principle, show “perfect” signals, give details of how we analyse such signals, then move on to less perfect signals and the effects on measurement accuracy and precision.
